I give unto you to be [lightly salted]

Toward the end of His ministry, Jesus took His disciples out of the bustling city. A congregation of those treasured followers went with him high into a mountain- symbolically “out of the world.” Considering He would soon have to leave them, and leave His Church to be led by His trusted friends, the Saviour gave them a special mandate: “I give unto you to be the salt of the earth… I give unto you to be the light of the world… therefore let your light so shine before this people, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in Heaven.” In Doctrine and Covenants, the Lord expounds, “they were to be a light unto the world,” and though there is only one saviour of the world, Christ shared His stewardship with them and called them “to be the saviours of men; and inasmuch as they were not the saviours of men, they were as salt that has lost its savour” (D&C 103:9-10). 1,752 more words
